How to use groups

References can be organised using the Groups feature

  • Click Create Group 
  • Enter a name for the group

Add references to a group:

  • Alternatively, drag and drop references into a group or right mouse click over a reference and select Add References to

More about groups:

Removing a reference from a group doesn't delete it from the main library, it just removes the reference from the group.

Smart groups are based around a search strategy. Refer to EndNote Help for more information.
